Gunn and the knife happy goon
25 April 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

PETER GUNN "Lynn's Blues" – 1958 Craig Stevens (Peter Gunn) is asked by his girl, Lola Albright to look in on a friend of hers. This friend, Linda Lawson, is having some sort of man trouble. Stevens agree and heads out to the club where Lawson sings.

Stevens listens to a set and then has a talk with Lawson in her dressing room. Before any info can change hands, the pair are interrupted by gangster, David Tomack. Tomack pulls a large blade and suggests with a big grin that Stevens should leave. His boss, mobster, Guy Prescott does not like men talking with Miss Lawson. Stevens nods to Lawson and leaves.

A quick talk with Stevens' Police Lt buddy, Herschel Bernardi fills him in on all the talk on the mobster. It seems the last man who had a thing for Lawson was found dead in an elevator with several unneeded holes in his head.

Stevens decides to have another talk with Lawson. Lawson admits she had been stepping out with the dead man. She was sick of Prescott. Presott however will not accept the break up. He had sent Tomack to 'end' the affair.

Prescott of course takes an immediate dislike to Stevens and sends his knife happy pet, Tomack to alter Stevens breathing arrangements. Stevens knows that a hit is coming and is on guard for the try. It is Tomack who collects the unneeded holes while Bernardi puts the grab on his boss, Prescott.

All this in a 25 minute runtime. Great show! (B/W)
